Havana Twists: everything you need to know

Havana Twists are large, kinky twists created by using Havana hair extensions. Havana hair is textured, synthetic hair extensions. Havana hair is made to look similar to kinky, natural hair. Havana hair is light-weight and can be styled in buns, ponytails, or left to hang.

3 Reasons Why Havana Twists Help Hair

1. Havana Twists are a protective hair style. They protect the ends of the hair strand from being exposed to the environment.
2. Havana Twists are made of light-weight synthetic hair, lessening the strain on the roots which is caused by heavier hair extensions.
3. Havana Twists are chunky twists, meaning that each individual twist holds a larger amount of hair. This lessens strain usually caused by smaller extensions like “micros” or “individual” braids/twists.

My experiences: I use one pack of Havana hair in Chestnut Black to create my Havana Twists. The Havana Twists keep my hair moisturized, are easy to take down, and protect the ends of my hair.
